Q: What is ākiva?
AKIVA believes in eating what you love and gives you an easy method to balance it all - Superfoods. AKIVA’s Superfoods are simple, one-stop solutions to your daily health needs - convenient, mobile and smart. Superfoods for a Super You!
Q: Why has the name changed from kivā to ākiva?
The new name signifies a fresh perspective to the way we do things and a bigger, better portfolio of health foods and beverages. Stay tuned… because we are just getting started here!
Q: Who can consume ākiva?
A: Anyone and Everyone!
ākiva is safe and recommended for everyone. However, we do not advise the juice shots for children under the age of 5. Candies, as the name suggests, can and should be enjoyed across age groups.
Q. What goes into the products you make?
All our products are made from ingredients sourced directly from their respective places of origin in India. Fruits and herbs from the foothills of Himalayas, sugarcane from organic farms of Nundarbans, coconuts from their best source in Kerala, spices from Sirohi and Jalgaon and cinnamon from its most famous place of origin in India - Sikkim.
We make absolutely sure that we don't add any processed sugar, artificial colours, fragrances or other harmful chemicals into our products.
Q: How do I choose my ākiva shot?
ākiva shots should be chosen purely on the basis of the desired health benefits. Also, once you choose an ākiva shot, you should stick to a daily routine to realise the health benefits.
If you are looking at general wellness or are still undecided about what benefit you want to target first, try our assorted pack or 'our favourites' pack.
Q: Do ākiva shots contain any refined sugar, artificial flavours, colours, sulphates, parabens or essences?
No, none of those!
Q: Do ākiva shots contain preservatives?
Yes, to preserve the nutrients.
Though we understand the growing desire to avoid preservatives, it also becomes imperative to add them to a liquid product to maintain its freshness and nutrient levels. Having said that, we follow a policy of "minimal preservation" in our products, which means we add the fewest preservatives and in the smallest quantities possible. To be precise - 100 parts per million (0.01% by volume) of E211, which is 10 times lower than the government permissible limit of 1000 parts per million.
E211 is a common food preservative ‘Sodium Benzoate’ which falls under the GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) category. It has been approved by Codex Alimentarius- a ‘World Health Organization’ body.
Q: In how many days can I expect to start seeing the health benefits?
After 2-3 weeks.
Ayurveda focuses on slow and sustainable replenishment of body nutrients and internal healing. The duration before health benefits start showing up could be vastly different for different people depending on body type, lifestyle and discipline. However, 2 weeks is the least before you can start observing noticeable changes.
Q: The shots taste different from the last time I consumed them. Is there a problem?
Your shots could taste different because of 2 reasons:
· We are constantly trying to innovate and improve our product offering and therefore keep making them healthier and tastier.
· Over 90% of our ingredients are sourced locally from the Himalayan belt and used fresh in the juices. Any change in taste could be the result of a seasonal change or the difference of one lot of natural fruits from another.
Q: How should ākiva shots be consumed?
We recommend 1 shot of your preferred variant every morning, preferably before breakfast.
You can drink more than 1 variant in a day (in fact all 7 if you like). Just remember to start with one and slowly add other variants to your diet every 4-5 days. Your body takes time to adapt to everything… even Ayurveda!
Q: Are there any foods or drinks I should avoid before or after taking an ākiva shot?
Q: Can I have more than one ākiva shot (of a single variant) everyday?
Q: What is the shelf life of ākiva shots?
Q: How can ākiva shots be stored?
Q: How do I choose my jaggery candy?
Q: Do ākiva candies contain any artificial flavours, colours, sulphates, parabens or essences?
Q: Do ākiva candies contain preservatives?
Q: What are the various health benefits of these Jaggery Candies?
What’s more? Kivā’s jaggery candies come in 5 delectable flavours- plain, masala, coconut, cinnamon and chocolate that each come with their own individual health benefits, besides greatly adding to the taste.
Q: How should the candies be consumed?
We have been eating them all day, but our favorite time is when we have that post meal dessert craving. Jaggery satisfies it like nothing else… healthily of course!
You can also add the jaggery cubes to your daily cup of tea. A much healthier substitute to refined sugar!
